"Marsha Boulton, winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humor for the first book in this series, is back with another winsome and witty collection of essays about life on the farm.
This new collection includes tales of hilarious goings-on in the septic field, the sage of a new old-style cedar fence, adventures with a Taliban mink; and the rigors of trying to stack a cord of wood both correctly and where it won't be completely covered in snow when you need it most. Of course, Wally the Wonder Dog is back, with a new rooster to tease.
Boulton's many fans will be completely enthralled by this long-awaited collections. Letters from the Country IV is destined to covert many an urban dweller to the delights and joys of rural life
